2K Marin Ready For Some Criticism For BioShock 2

BioShock 2’s creative director, Jordan Thomas has revealed the development team is prepared for some fan criticism with the release of the sequel due to the “nostalgia to novelty” ratio and admits they're expecting something of a backlash from players, despite the respect they've maintain for the title:
“Well, since the early days, I’ve been candid with the team about the fact that no matter what we finally produced, we had to be comfy with the idea that a lot of people would disagree with our core creative choices — internally and externally. For a lot of people, the idea of a sequel to BioShock will always be an abstract ideal, against which any physical experience (with realistic limits) must pale. It’s the nature of fan enthusiasm, I think, to hold a special place in our hearts for things that are novel, and originality certainly drove the first game’s success."
